Life and career[edit]

She was born on the Gold Coast. She is the granddaughter of Russ Hinze (Queensland Politician) and sister of Guy Hinze (ex-Qld Police officer and owner of Bubs Baby Shops). In 1994, when she was only 14 years old, Hinze was contracted to appear in the Australian edition of Vogue.[citation needed]

Hinze was the host and head judge of Project Runway Australia during the first and second season, it was announced Megan Gale would be the host of the third season. She appeared on the first ever cover of the short lived Australian Edition of Ocean Drive magazine.

Quotes[edit]

  • "I feel more Australian when I am overseas: you can take the girl out of Australia, but you cannot take Australia out of the girl."[4]
  • "My accent isn't too broad, like most Queenslanders. But yes, I do have to talk a little slower so people can understand what I am saying."[4]
